It sounds as if a second sequel in the popular Father Of The Bride series could be on the way. In a recent interview with Us Weekly, one of the series actors George Newbern says that a screenplay does exist for a Father Of The Bride 3.
“Charles Shyer wrote a script. I know there’s a script out there. And there’s talk,” Newbern told Us Weekly. “I don’t know how far it got but I’m sure most of the cast would be into it if the script was right. So maybe that’s just a question of that happening.”
The first film, which starred Steve Martin in the lead, was released all of the way back in 1991, and was actually a remake of the 1950 film of the same name. The story revolved around George Banks (Martin) and his wife, Nina (Diane Keaton), who are the proud parents of Annie (Kimberly Williams), but when she returns from studying abroad and announces that she’s engaged, their whole world turns upside down, especially that of overprotective George.
It spawned a sequel four years later, titled Father of the Bride Part II, also starring Martin, so there would be quite a gap between that and a third film.
Not much else is known as yet, but of course, we’ll keep you posted.
